rasta -

Not that boring. We learned some Thai when my son studied in Thailand. He is a certified Muay Thai instructor under Ajarn Chai Sirsute and spent three months each summer over a 4 year period studiying under various masters in Thailand with Master Sirsute.

Here are a few pics of my son and I with Master Chai.

The last one is me and my son with Guro Dan Inosanto. I am an apprentice instructor under Guro Dan in Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do and Eskrima Kali.

The head Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instructor (Frank Cucci - 1995 world champion) at the studio where I studied certified under Pedro Sauer - who studied with and earned his jiu jitsu black belt and instructor certification under Rickson and the rest of the Gracies.

I only made it to brown belt in BJJ before the shoulders and back started impacting my grappling training.

i meant the post to stilldead77 that i deleted.

Dan Inosanto was Bruce Lee's top student, I used to drop by Bruce Lee's dojo in the early 60's on East 14th st, Hayward, Ca. I was into the "classical mess" back then. James Lee also taught with Bruce Lee then. Jim Mather was my Sensei(1965-66) Then in okinawa i studied Shorinryu under Shugoro Nakazato. I learned enough to get killed by the average street fighter-haha.
Jeet Kune Do is the real deal as well as MMA & Thai Kick Boxing. Waaaay better then tag-karate. Now my style is fiding wid out fiding (420+bad breath is deadly!)
Now I run (ok, jog)
Hey now, I have most of the issues of 1964 thru 1967 Black Belt Magazines. I wonder if they are worth anything?

I hear you. I haven't fought competitively for about 6 years. Herniated discs will do that. Have fought defensively a few times, but they were young idiots at an ATM and the sight of their own blood took all the fight out of them. That and seeing a karambit coming at their bellies.....

I still train and teach 5 nights a week but now I carry a Sig Sauer 226 Navy .40 in my left shoulder holster and a Heckler and Koch .45 in my right. Funny thing, since I started carrying concealed I have never once had to draw or even consider it.
